THE COURIER, MONDAY, JANUARY 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
THE -COURIER, MONDAY, - JANUARY '25. WE publish the following-epitome of a long account contained in the'Toronto Patriot of the 7th of August l^sXTrelativeTfo the erection of another monument jn hdhWof General Brock-the former one having been destroyed by a band of American sympathisers during the lato troubles. Sir George Arthur took* the lead upon this occasion, and, as our readers'will see, was followed by the whole strength of Upper Canada, where his administration, characterised'as it has been for Us .firmness as well as prudence, has caused him to be universally esteemed. He was expected to ar- rive in England during the present month, and it is not impossible that in the event of General Napier retiring-from the Government of the Cape, he will be appointed to that station. " The signal for the gathering having sounded its stir ing appeal throughout the remotest sections of the pro- vince, and the summons having been most promptly re- sponded to, we made one of the party who l...
THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
THE COURIER. Strcnuf et prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY. JANUARY 26. THE renewal of licenses to public-houses takes place on the 1st of February next, and although to those who have ever witnessed the proceeding's of the Hobart Town bench upon such occasions, it might seem quite in vain to expect that our warning voice would nave any other effect than that of arousing their Worships to the propriety of administering a little prudent counsel to those parties who appeared to them to have conducted their, houses in an improper manner, seeing that the deprivation of a favour such as a license is a far more ungracious act in vulgar estimation than is the conferring of the same, yet do we hope that an appeal from this tribunal to the people will be attended with some beneficial effects, in awakening the public sense to an alarm at the insidious inculcation of vice which thereby obtains as it were the solemn sanction of the legislature. ' The excuses framed for this wholesale system of lice...

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. XI.—GOATS AND GOATS' HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. XL-GOATS AND GOATS' HAIR. Tlítt the nations, dwelling on the southern coast of the great Peninsula of Arabia, had inlercourte with the opu- lent regions of the East, even in the very earliest ages, is altetted in the page» of sacred history. From the book of Job it appenrs that the Arabians had made great progress jo fisheries, manufactures, commerce and navigation, and in the 37th chapter of Genesis mention is made of a com- mercial adventure conducted by then. When Joseph's brethren conspired to put bim to death and had already cast him into the pit, " they lifted up their -eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Itbmaelites came from Gilead, with their camel», bearing spicery, and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt." Embarrassed and dreading to have the sin of Joseph's death apon them, the conspirators sold him to the Isbmaelites for twenty pieces of silver, who'carried him with them ¡ato Egypt, where we are told he prospered an...

THE CABINET. THE WINTER LAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 January 1841
THE CABINET, THE WINTER LAY. Ab 1 why reposest thou, so pale, So very still in thy white veil, Thou cherish'd Father-land ? _ Where are the joyous lay sof spring, The varied hue of summer's wing, Thy glowing vestment bland ? But half-attired, thou slumberest now. No flocks to seek thy pastures go, O'er vales or mountains steep : Silent is every warbler's lay, No more the bee bums through the day, Yet art thou fair in sleep I On all thy trees, on every bough, Thousands of cbrystals sparkle now, Where'er our eyes alight : Firm on the spotless robe we tread, Which o'er thy beauteous form is spread, With glittering boar-frost bright^ Our Father kind, who dwells above, For thee this garment pure bath wove, He watches over thee. Therefore in peace, thy slumber take, Our Father will the weary wake, New strength, new light to see. Soon to the breath of spring's soft sighs, Delighted thou again wilt rise, In wondrous life so fair. I feel those sighs breathe o'er the plain. Dear Nature, then ...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 January 1841
INDIA. We give prominence in our editorial columns to the following which reached us yesterday in the form of a Delhi Gazette Extraordinary. Without com- menting upon its importance, we shall only express our approbation of the energy which is now operating to retrieve the superior position we retired from, which energy this shows to be more than ever, requi- site to meet the coming storm. Troops are hasten- ing to Scinde and Afghanistan, and those already there are concentrating. Sir T. M'Mahon, the Bom- bay Commander in Chief, it is said by the journals of that Presidency, will proceed to Scinde forthwith, to stimulate exertion, and to be nearer the seat of warfare. There is no fear of the issue, and although the people of Cabool may rejoice at Dost Mahomed's approach, yet their's is not an attachment that will make them " war to the knife" in his cause. They easily quailed before us, and there is no reason to expect that a few months shall have produced a total moral change. Anti...
